Autonomous Cars and Technology
Autonomous cars are no longer a thing of the future: Tesla, Google, and Uber are test-driving cars across America, aiming to remove human error from one of the most dangerous acts we engage in on a daily basis.
But a recent crash in Arizona, resulting in the death of a pedestrian, raises questions about responsibility and whether the technology is safe.
The Daily‘s Sam Baran was joined by Dr Raja Jurdak, Senior Principal Research Scientist at CSIRO Data 61, to discuss the technology behind autonomous cars and how they will fit into our future. You can find Dr Jurdak’s writing on the subject for The Conversation here.
